DECORATING THE LEMON AND BLUEBERRY CUPCAKE BAKING KIT
Start by piping a
blob of buttercream
about the size of a large blueberry
Use the back of a teaspoon, press down into the blob and drag to the centre
Repeat the first two steps again right next
Continue so you have a 'ring' all around the outside edge of your cake
Now continue on the inside ring, you should be able to get 3 'petals'
Finish with one final blob of buttercream in the centre
Top with three fresh blueberries in the middle
FILLING A PIPING BAG
Filling a piping bag can be a fiddly job, often with you needing a spare pair of hands; the solution is a tall glass!
Turn the top of your piping bag inside out by about half - this keeps the edge of the bag from getting messy but also means your bag is sturdier. Then place the pointed end into a glass so it stands up, leaving you free to hold a bowl and a spatula to spoon your filling in. Once filled, pull the edges of the piping bag back up and twist to tightly close.
